An Ingenious Paper Map Zooms as You Unfold It
I'm on a bender about maps...following last weeks NYC on the street street maps - here's a VERY cool, beautifully designed zoomable maps! With a smartphone, Google Maps, and two fingers, you can summon pretty much any map you want, from a wide view of the seven continents to the handful of blocks immediately surrounding your house.
There Are Only Four Jobs in the Whole World – Are You in the Right One?
Hmmmm, think I'm in the Thinkers & Builders categories.
If you are like me, I struggle with where to put my phone in my bag (the ready made pockets are floppy), then when it is out of my bag/s, where to put it on my desk whilst working and then then whilst I am driving in the car with the charger and audio cord, it looks like it is hooked up to life support! But then where do I keep my earphones and USB charger cord? A messy mess. I want unknottable, retractable earphones that plug in by themselves and pop into my ears when I need to answer a call. That maybe next. Or maybe I should just bite it and buy bluetooth earpiece. But whilst I ponder at least this product from a Linked-in design group post solves the storage issue for the earphones. Designed by yankcodesign.com, I just like the IDEA of having a neat little drawer for the earphones plus it can stand up all by itself! "I’m sure you’ve picked up on the trend of iPhone cases that do more than just protect the device- we’ve seen designs with kickstands and others with compartments for headphones. Finally, here’s one that has both! The Ö Case features a multifunctional component that stores ear-buds and also doubles as a stand to prop up the device. It’s still compact enough that the user won’t notice a difference in size."
